Charlie is the head zoo security guy (for those who forget him a reminder) and when we return to zoo from the pub we apes always pop in the security office for a chat, a cup of pg tips tea, and just maybe an after pub banana before we return to the monkey house.
camp Lucas Grabeel in one of his many hats.
A couple of days ago we started get Miley Cyrus nude spam’s, which the hosts involved were firewalled (we monkeys love iptables on linux) and know she is not a imap mail server but some male human erection magnet for preteens because of an unseen disney film..
So we told Charlie about these, and then he said to us High school musical (that’s the disney film imdb: tt0475293) was on tv tonight in an few minutes time which had the no clothes wearing Miss Cyrus (not an imap server) in. Charlie and his crack team of security staff then all made sure they would be in to see it on the communal tv set. A banana was handed to myself so i decided to stay as well to see what the fuss is about..
The film is about an american high school where apparently admitting you like cooking, playing a musical instrument, or liking maths is something like being gay, The cast of stereotypes including the very camp Lucas Grabeel all come-out in a big song and dance number, while our misfit heros overcome great odds to sing together with their clothes on. I was most disappointed with that.
British version of high school grange hill - not camp.
Theres a point to this as the american school was perfect, with not a spot of graffiti, or signs of Balitmore (this blog) anywhere to be seen and after the last camp scene (it involves biscuits) Charlie and his team said it’s not like a bog standard comprehensive school like Grange Hill (wiki) which it seems Charlie went to.
I asked why and got the response it was too clean, too nice and beyond reality as even we know human children are beastly to each other.
Alas we never saw a no clothes wearing Miley Cyrus. It’s odd that a sugar and sweet tale of humans is so loved by people when it appears is nothing like the reality they know.
We however thanked Charlie for the post pub banana and got a better understanding of humanity in return. More serous posts will return when i finish reading some books which means returning to to the monkey house .
